Small Change Saturday: Before you Speak
I have seen this sign roaming all around Pinterest lately…
And I LOVE IT!!!
I know it’s meant as a teaching tool for kids, but I think a lot of grownups could use this reminder. Not only for the way we speak to each other, but also to the way we speak to ourselves. How many times, in the “throes” of dieting and weight loss have we told ourselves what “losers” we are or how “hopeless” it is. Or what about during a hard workout, “I can’t do this” or “This is impossible”. Is that true? Helpful? Inspiring? Necessary? Kind? NOT AT ALL! It’s almost harder to speak kind words to ourselves than it is to others.
So watch what you say to yourself and to others this week (and beyond 🙂 ). THINK before you speak.
Love and Joy,
